'There is scientific support for the plausibility of connecting the use of bras with breast disease. Two published studies have shown that women who wear bras have much higher breast cancer rates than women who don’t wear a bra.

They found that the more hours per day that woman wear bras, the higher their rates of breast cancer. Their theory is that bras can bind and constrict the lymphatic circulation. This prevents the natural flushing out of accumulated cancer-causing wastes and toxins from the breast. Fluid pooling could then result in fibrocystic changes (benign lumps, cysts, and pain). This gives a breeding ground for various problems, including cancer.'
